It's my BirThDaY! #tamsbirthdaybash

Hey y'all... I AM SO EXCITED! It's my BIRTHDAY!!! WOO WOOO!
I love birthdays!! I am no where near the age yet where I am NOT excited about my birthday in any way.. I still LOVE celebrating it and look forward to the presents!! ;)

I am also so excited for my birthday because I get to celebrate with so many AMAZING teacher friends and want to say THANK YOU for your support, love, friendship, and collaboration in this virtual & social world with a big ol' giveaway bash! My entire TpT and TN stores are on sale beginning today for 28% off!! (they will be on sale through Saturday!) I have TONS of giveaways going on over on my Facebook page through the rest of the week, with 28 total winners and 9 flash freebies for 28 minutes each! It's going to be a GREAT day and week, so make sure you've "liked" my page in order to enter!

The BIG giveaway, in detail:
I wanted to share *a few* of My Favorite Things inside and outside of the classroom... sooo, here's what they are and why they're my faves!

Papermate Flair felt pens & Staedtler Fineliners: I LOVE felt pens! I am very picky about my writing utensils, but these are the best! I especially love them for grading!

Nate Berkus paper clips: I LOVE giant paper clips! They come quite in handy when it comes to teacher manuals. These gold ones from Nate's line for Target are beautiful!

EOS lip balm: I am pretty sure this is everyone's favorite! I chose the passionfruit one because it smells soooo yummy....but the mint is also wonderful

VS Beauty Rush mascara: this is my go-to mascara! It lasts me for a few months and works wonders on my lashes. Plus, it's from VS and is no more expensive than a pharmacy brand!

Scotch washi tape: let's be honest for a minute....pretty much every teacher on IG and TpT love washi tape. So I found some awesome orange & fall-colored designs because orange is my favorite color and I love this time of year!

Ghirardelli caramel chocolates: yuummmmm!

Julep nail polish: in my birthstone color & a beautiful maroon for fall! I love getting my monthly Julep box in the mail! So many great surprises and products for only $20! Click here if you want to get your first box free! Both come in that adorable orange polka dot bag from ipsy. I just love the Ipsy surprises too! only $10 a month for awesome make-up products and samples!? yes, please!

arm candy from The Limited: I buy pretty much ALL of my clothing at The Limited. So, I included some great arm candy to dress up your daily outfits!

soooo... I've decided that my Blogger Buddies can get an *extra* entry by commenting here on my blog! Comment to tell me which of my favorite things is your favorite and what your email is to be entered here! You can also enter on my Facebook page by liking and commenting there!

  1. I LOVE all the fabulous items you are giving away but my ultimate favorite would be the Flair pens!!! I just got some this year and they are awesome :) Thank you for being so generous on your birthday!!! -Heather S (fb)

    1. thank you Heather! I have to agree those Flair pens are awesome. If you win, I think you'll love the Staedtler fine liners too! They are my ultimate favorite, and I never thought a pen could beat the Flairs! lol
      You've got all 3 entries now, so good luck! I've got more giveaways and flash freebies coming up tomorrow and Friday on FB too :)
      Thanks for following and entering!! :)

  2. I would love the washi tape! It has so many uses. Thanks for all the giveaways and Freebies.

    1. You are right, it definitely does! You're welcome..... Good luck! Thanks for following and entering! :)

  3. I haven't tried any of these actually! I've been DYING to get some washi tape, but I just haven't found the right color yet (I am loving that orange on the bottom in your pic though!). I've heard great things about the EOS lip balm (heaven knows my lips need it), but I've just been too cheap to buy it in the checkout line at WalMart! haha
    Wishing you the happiest of birthdays! :)

    1. EOS is amazing... but I never bought it until I got it as a gift at Christmas and then went through that one pretty quickly! I bought the mint and then a friend gave me this passionfruit one! It's definitely worth it!
      Good luck and thanks for entering! :)
